Crash Love

AFI or A Fire Inside has been one of my favorite punk bands since 2006.  Ever since they put out that "Miss Murder" song i've been in love with the band ever since.  They put out the album Crash Love 2 years ago.  Me personally i thought the album was pretty awesome but asking opinions from the other AFI fans theres always a debate that "Oh I like AFI's older stuff a lot more then their newer stuff."  Well i can see where some people are going with that.  Any songs that have been put out before their "Sing the Sorrow" album are a completely different style.  They give you more of an adrenaline rush i guess is how i would put it.

As for me I like old and new AFI just i find myself listening to their newer stuff a lot more.  Especially this album.  Some of the singles include "Medicate" and "Beautiful Thieves" after listening to the album more other songs have grown on me.  Some of my personal favorites on the album are "Torch Song" and "Too Shy to Scream."  If you are going to buy the album make sure its the deluxe edition so you get the 4 bonus tracks.  From those four tracks, my 2 favorites are "Fainting Spells" and "Where We Used To Play"

But thats my opinion on the album.  here are some links to a couple of the songs i mentioned.

For anyone who hasn't gotten into AFI yet, hope you enjoy these songs :-)

  5. I got into AFI back in probably 2001. I've known them for quite a long time. It's weird because I remember when nobody knew who they were. I would just be with a group of friends talking about them at school all day and nobody would know who we were talking about.

  14. Yeah there'll always be those people who love their 'old' or 'original' stuff...as time goes on bands styles change as they mature both as people and as a band. I think it's good that they do this and so if I like a band then I just go with the flow and recognise that they aren't the same people they were 10-15-20 years ago!
